While most of us would always agree that a handgun is the most effective weapon for self-defense, today we at The Caller are wondering what knives our readers would carry if they ever found themselves gunless and in trouble.

Now, there is a saying that the loser of a knife fight dies at the scene while the winner gets to die at the hospital.

Nobody wants to find themselves in the middle of a knife fight. There aren’t any winners.

But what about having a knife as a last-ditch form of self-defense? In a situation where someone or something is threatening your life, you have two options: You can either be helpless or dangerous. Who in their right mind would choose the former? 

We aren’t saying that a knife is the preferable option, we’re just saying we’re curious: If you had to pick a knife for self-defense, which one would you choose?

Here are a couple of options. Vote below and leave us a comment to let us know what you think.
